PACE Forms

Please forward all PACE forms to psycadvising@lsu.edu. Please include syllabi for the courses you will be attending at the other university. These are needed to evaluate transfer credit. If you do not have access to the syllabi before your classes begin, we recommend reaching out to the university you will be visiting.

If you have non-PSYC credit that needs to be evaluated, you must also reach out to the appropriate department for that credit. For example, reach out to the Foreign Language Department for language credits to be evaluated. Please include the syllabi for these courses when reaching out to other departments as well.
